3D Point Cloud Processing Software for Surveyors and Engineers

   Leica Geosystems HDS Cyclone — software modules provide point cloud users with the widest set of work process options for 3D laser scanning projects in engineering, surveying, construction and related applications.

    Unique, Efficient Foundation
   The inherent completeness of 3D point clouds represents one of their major advantages over other sources of geometric information. Cyclone’s unique Object Database Client/Server software architecture provides the highest performance environment for laser scanning projects. Cyclone software makes it easy for users to manage data efficiently in databases. Users can work concurrently on databases, thereby reducing the need to copy and/or transmit large point cloud project files.

   Cyclone 5.3 Modules for Flexible Configuration
   Cyclone 5.3 is comprised of individual software modules for different needs and for flexible product customization.

   Cyclone-SCAN 5.3
   Cyclone-SCAN is the software interface for operating the HDS2500, HDS3000, and HDS4500 scanners. User-specified scan area and density, data filtering, scan scripting, and automatic recognition and extraction of both planar and spherical Leica Geosystems HDS targets – all contribute to this easy-to-use, intelligent data capture application.

    Cyclone-REGISTER 5.3
   Cyclone-REGISTER provides the complete set of tools for aligning point clouds captured from different scanning positions, quickly and accurately. Cyclone-REGISTER supports the use of Leica Geosystems HDS targets to geo-reference scan data, as well as the ability to align overlapping areas of point clouds – without the use of targets. This results in optimum registration, and provides significant time- and cost-savings by reducing the need to place and extract targets.

   Cyclone-MODEL 5.3
   This versatile, powerful module enables professionals to use point clouds directly, to process them into objects for robust export into CAD (and other applications), and to allow robust import of data from CAD (and other applications). Cyclone-MODEL 5.3 has the industry’s largest, most complete and automated set of tools for accurately modeling 3D point clouds as CAD geometry or as meshes for engineering, surveying, construction, architectural and related applications.

    Cyclone-SURVEY 5.3
   Cyclone-SURVEY lets surveyors quickly extract relevant feature and coordinate information from the point cloud data via the Cyclone Virtual Surveyor™ function. Powerful tools support complex topographic models, with intelligent mesh decimation that minimizes file size while retaining accurate geometry. Cyclone-SURVEY is a subset of the Cyclone-MODEL product and is an ideal module for surveyors.

    Cyclone-VIEWER 5.3
   Cyclone-VIEWER is a view-only version of the Cyclone software. This product, free of charge, enables visualization of Cyclone data on a desktop or portable PC, without a full featured Cyclone license. Share your Cyclone databases with non-Cyclone-MODEL users; the Cyclone-VIEWER provides full viewing capabilities to allow users to rotate, zoom and navigate through Cyclone data, including point clouds and 3D models.

    Cyclone-SERVER 5.3
   Cyclone-SERVER enables individual members of workgroups to simultaneously access 3D point cloud data sets and/or models. This provides a powerful environment for collaborative design on large, complex projects, and can significantly reduce project execution time. Cyclone-SERVER supports the simultaneous connection of one through ten ‘client’ users to the same data server in a network environment. These clients can be licensees of Cyclone-REGISTER, MODEL, SURVEY, VIEWER, or Cyclone CloudWorx for AutoCAD and for MicroStation.
